Our capacitive sensors for object detection feature a straight-line electrical field. Using this, they recognize even media with a low dielectric constant at a long distance. These sensors detect liquids as well as solid bodies such as wafers, printed circuit boards, cardboard packaging, stacks of paper, bottles, plastic blocks and boards.
You want to detect and monitor fill levels in containers, pipes, or tanks while in contact with the medium? This is not a problem for our capacitive level sensors without media contact. They detect the fill level of liquids and bulk materials and deliver reliable results.
A wide variety of models is available for many different applications: especially compact and flat cylindrical, cubic, or disc configurations as well as pressure-rated versions and with a variety of plug and cable variants.
Of particular interest: equipped with our patented Smart Level technology, the capacitive sensors from Balluff compensate for moisture, foam, and adhesion of any kind. That makes the sensors ideal for level measurement of conductive media.
Our capacitive level sensors with media contact detect the level of granulates, powdery, viscous or liquid media as well as bulk goods in containers, pipes or tanks. Thanks to their great number of variants they can handle a wide range of applications.
Choose from cylindrical form factors, immersibles and versions for hole or flange mounting as well as pressure-rated versions or sensors with different connectors and cables. In addition, their diverse range of housing materials, such as stainless steel, PTFE, and PEEK, ensure the best possible chemical resistance.
Good to know: equipped with our patented Smart Level technology, the capacitive sensors from Balluff compensate for moisture, foam, and adhesion of any kind, and they offer high application reliability.
Wherever a sensor with integrated electronics would not work optimally due to its environment, the capacitive sensor heads from Balluff offer you the precision to keep your system running. These are suitable for detecting liquid, paste-like, and powdery media – in direct contact or even through up to 4 mm thick container walls made of glass and plastic.
Thanks to the compact design, our solutions work exceptionally well in tight spaces because the electronics are separated from the sensor head.
Balluff remote amplifiers enable our capacitive sensor heads to be setup and processed easily. Compact signal converters with switching signals, analog values, or IO-Link functionality for top-hat rail mounting are available for this purpose.
Our portfolio also includes capacitive sensors specifically for high technical requirements, such as for pressure or high temperatures. As self-adhering variants, they adapt very easily to the surface they are to be attached too in a flexible manner. Housing materials such as stainless steel, plastic, or PTFE make them ideal for use in tough environments.
For use at extremely high temperatures or when space is limited, we even offer sensor heads with remote electronics. As a result, these can also be installed in hard-to-reach places and fine-tuned easily. Since their amplifiers are available with switching or analog output or with IO-Link interface, you can use the sensors
across a wide range of applications. Depending on which output you choose, you can use it to detect a limit level, for example, or to set up continuous fill level detection.
